Girona Art Museum is located in the incomparable setting of the former Bishop’s Palace, a building first documented in the 10th century. It now houses the most important art collection in Girona province, with pieces dating from Romanesque times to the early 20th century.The building still conserves several spaces that bear witness to its original function, notably the Episcopal gaol and the superb garden, open to the public on several occasions throughout the year.

We came to Girona as a day trip, and I was blown away by its charm and history. A great place to explore and have a casual dinner. It has a low key vibe that was a great change of pace from larger cities like Barcelona. Go on a clear day to take advantage of the walking and the charming... More

Whilst wandering the maze of streets it made a change from cafe's and shops to take a break in this beautiful museum. The building is stunning and whilst religious art isn't my favourite thing, it's good to open your mind and just take it all in, in the beautiful surroundings.

Worth a look if you are interested in religious art, somewhat heavy if not. Very quiet, get the impression most folks don't call in, although it's only another 3€ on top of your cathedral admission or 4.5 € if visiting gallery only.

wonderful museum tucked away in the old city near the cathedral . A beautiful building where one can meander through huge rooms and intimate corners to view some of the marvelous art from medieval Catalonia. One has to fall in awe and humility to comprehend the naive and genuine talents of the artists who gave their best to represent the... More

This museum is housed in the former Bishop's palace beside the Cathedral. Most of the collection are Romanesque and Gothic works, these are also the best works in the collection. There are also works up to the twentieth century. In particular Romanesque works dominate the museum with a large number of intricate architectural elements, paintings and sculptures forming the basis... More

This collection was the highlight of my short trip to N. Spain. SO much more than merely interesting, The heartfelt and very personal work which went into the figures of the Madonna - at a time when she was allowed to be portrayed as a real woman. . . I was gobsmacked at the living personalities portrayed in the faces.... More

This museum is interesting because of its beautiful collection of Virgin with child. Quite easy and fast to visit, but with great emotions.
